Christmas Tree of Hope

Donate Now Through!

The annual Children’s Fund Christmas Tree Of Hope was founded in 1976 to bring hope to kids and families struggling through the holiday season.

The campaign now serves as the primary fundraising mechanism for the Children’s Fund. Official “Christmas Tree Of Hope” trees are lit in Gore Park Hamilton and Burlington as symbols of our efforts during the Christmas season.

2021 has been a struggle, but it has demonstrated the strength and compassion Hamiltonians have for one another and for our community.  As we continue to battle the pandemic, and its aftermath, Y108 needs your support.  Together, we can make Christmas miracles come true.

The Y108 Christmas Tree of Hope returns for its 45th year and this year, the demand for assistance is at a crucial high. No amount is too small, every dollar helps.  Donations now being accepted.
